Demand for Cloud DevOps is steep!

Adopting the principles of DevOps is easier for startups but not so for the large established corporations. We have helped not only several startups but also teams at large established corporations, such as Microsoft and Boeing, in reshaping their internal culture and driving organizational change while adopting Cloud DevOps.

How you benefit?

You write beautiful software but do you know what it takes to deliver your software as a service to your audience?
Do you recall the recent layoffs from Microsoft and other major corporations? The Test role is being folded into a multi-disciplinary skill set where you are expected to scope/test/develop/document/deploy/service the customers end to end. Do you have what it takes?
You design well but do you know what it takes to realize/deliver your blueprint as a fully functional resilient cloud based service?
Cloud is the new system. Best admins are those that never get paged because their system “just works.” Can you get the cloud to deliver for your customers?
You understand the customer and can write specs but the industry has changed. Spec writing has given way to rapid prototyping & reiterating on the cloud with the customer. Can you demonstrate how to do that?
You rule the operations world and zap fire every night. Wouldn’t it be nice if the fire extinguishes by itself? Do you know how to enable your cloud to heal itself? That way you can focus on the big picture instead?
Databases (relational/nosql/transactional/analytical/warehouse/bigdata etc.) are now delivered as a service. Can you handle all that in symphony with your team?
Have you ever seen cases where product documentation has fallen behind a version (or two) and the product dev team is ahead a version (or two) from what is actually production deployed for customers? Do you know what it takes to synchronize test/spec/dev/doc/stage/prod across your organization so the customers keep coming back?
Do you know how to spot the right DevOps candidate from the heaps of resumes and LinkedIn profiles piling in front of you? Do know how to distill the skills you want to hire for your team? Equip yourself better by learning the ropes with hands-on experience.
You have been learning and practicing modern DevOps paradigm. Want to study cases and learn the best practices out there in the industry?
You are a self-driven, high-potential individual with an intense desire to learn and succeed. You want to apply industry best practices in Information Technology to solve business problems. You know how to work well with others in a team setting.

Our program is a great fit for working professionals who want to learn DevOps skill set needed to help businesses make the most of the cloud.

  • You will get away from managing individual servers (which is like managing a puppy) …instead want to treat the entire IT/cloud infrastructure as a system (< which is like managing cattle) that solves business problems.
  • You will learn how to manage cloud infrastructure as code. Automating cloud infrastructure will free you up to thinking on how to further use the cloud to solve problems facing your client/customer’s business.
  • You want to be mentored and instructed by veteran industry practitioners.
  • You want to meet great like-minded individuals and form life-long friendships.
  • You will take advantage of the tools, resources, network, and knowledge we offer to work in your favor.
  • You have done a lot of self-educating and are ready for a rigorous course to enhance your career as a Cloud DevOps professional.
Yes, we do accept international students. However, we are unable to sponsor you for any type of US Visa (no F1, no J1, no H1). You won’t need a Visa if you are joining the rest of the cohort via the Internet using a webcam.
